Taking a shot in the dark

Shot in the Dark cards come nicely packaged in a black and white box giving it that mystical feel.

Shot in the Dark

Opening it up and reading the rules it was clear from the off in how to play and score.

I also learned that all the questions within the deck has had a huge amount of research gone into it to ensure that questions and answers are sourced from the most reliable of sources, with every fact checked and double checked by them. By the nature of some of the questions, some do not have answers which are black and white so in those cases they went with the weight of evidence, and the reliability of the respective sources.

I have played this game a couple of times now once at home with my husband Jason and twice with friends online via Zoom.

Shot in the Dark

At home me and Jason each took a turn to ask one of the bizarre, interesting and hilarious questions. Taking educated guesses we each guessed our answer to which we thought was the most logical response before turning the card over. We decided the one in who reaches 10 points will be the winner of the game. The game was fun and full of wacky outcomes with many which I would of never even believed. Like I always thought by dropping a coin from the Eiffel Tower would kill someone but apparently not. That the longest prison sentence ever handed out was 141,078 years to a woman whom was charged with defrauding 16,000 people out of a total of 204 million US Dollars but was released from prison after serving eight years. Plus that the most commonly meat eaten in the world is chicken. Shot in the Dark is packed with many bizarre questions making us think and surprised in most cases.

I won in the end.

When it came to playing Shot in the Dark over Zoom with friends the game still was as fun. This time we set a time limit so the one with most points will win. Jason became the games master for the night and read out the questions whilst everyone texted their answer so as no copying others answers before shouting out. Then Jason would reveal the answer astounding us all in most instances. Some questions though can be logically thought out but some are very outside the box. Haydy @squibbvicious won the game in the end as with her logical thinking she thrashed us all.

Shot in the Dark Vol 2

I took along on my picnic to Leeds Castle where I played with a few other friends who equally enjoyed it and was surprised by the outcome of the answers. Like who knew the most popular place for selfies if the Eiffel Tower.

“It was hilarious fun. The questions are so random and answers even more fascinating. A good alternative to quizzes.”
